    Since the browser have to go over encryption before loading the actual website so it has to go through many doors so its oblivious that it will took much time.

        It is not necessary that all the https sites are slow you can see nowadays all the website are using it Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and even this forum which I think to load quickly.

          When the site makes the initial connection with the host there is an additional handshake setup as the encryption key is generated for that particular connection, the key is unique to that particular session and is one of the reasons that the https connection is so secure. Once the key is generated and handed off to the browser the connection is established and things move along very quickly.

          In one of the classes I teach, a few years ago, we looked at how the different rendering engines handle this key and the delays associated with assigning the key to the session. Even then, and this was towards the beginning of the https protocol being established the browser rendering engines handled this transition very well and we only saw a delay of a few milliseconds, thousandths of a second for non engineer types, which was barely noticeable.

          Over the years with the updates to the rendering engines and the additional changes to the https protocol stack the delay now is almost non-existent and in some cases may even be faster than a standard connection, as the standard connections (non-secure) are now becoming part of the exception rules with some web servers.

          If you are seeing significant delays across multiple browsers using the https protocol stack, it is something in the way the pages have been assembled or coded. Keep in mind that as more and more sites move to the https protocol stack, and they are moving in that direction for security reasons, the adherence to the proper structure of the HTML5 pages is being more closely watched by the search engines.

          If you are not following the proper structure sequence that could be a reason for some of the delays you are seeing.

          Without seeing your site, this is merely speculation but based on what I have been seeing over the last few years it is a pretty accurate speculation on what maybe occurring.

            A large volume of unoptimized images is usually the most common reason behind website slowness. High-resolution images can consume lots of bandwidth while loading. Uploading larger sized images and then scaling them down can unnecessarily increase the size of your web page – causing your website to load slowly.

                Too much traffic: At any given level, a web server can only support requests from a certain number of people. Once that number is surpassed, the page will load slower. The more visitors, the slower the website. With more visitors, the server providers might also need to devote additional resources to the website.
